There's been a lot of talk in the community about PHP 7 and what features will be included but there's been a *lot* of it. To help distill it down a bit Zend has posted this infographic of the Top 5 features that will be coming in this next major version.
Their top five list includes both the main points and a quick summary for:
- When it comes out (hint: this year)
- The spaceship operator
- Return type declarations and scalar type hints
- Performance improvements
...and #5, even more performance improvements. There's also some links to other information about some of the topics to provide even more detail for those wanting to dive in.
